Founded in 2010 by best friends Ryan Yeh and Sunny Wang with designer Chuck Lee. Imperial Tales mixes traditional Chinese symbols and designs with a blend of western flare to provide a unique line of Jewelry and Clothing.
The Chinese culture was veiled behind millenia’s of myth, folklore, history and heritage.Our culture first spread throughout the world through the silk-road – cascaded behind vast oceans, thousands of miles of desert terrain and hostile enviroments, these obstacles made china’s spices and silks coverted treasures of the western world.
From the Ruyi-Gua, Ying-Yang, to our calligraphy, vases and the dragon-these symbols became iconic and exemplary examples of Chinese artistry. From bronze to jade to porcelain china-Chinese artists have mastered these elements for war and for art.Throughout the copious millennia’s of human history, few culture have shown such originality in their arts and devotion to their craftsmanship.
Our goal at Imperial Tales is to continue this tradition of meticulous and creative craftsmanship.We wish to mix our culture with modern era fashion, to bring forth a unique yet traditional style utterly orginal to ourselves. Each and every piece at Imperial Tales is designed with the same passion and strenuous attention to detail as our fore-bearers. Tradition, uniqueness and quality are our mantras.We at Imperial Tales thank you and invite you to enjoy the Imperial Tales experience.
